Williams Mullen Reports CRE Pledge Progress in Effort to Advance Women and Build Diverse Pipeline
Williams Mullen reported progress on five areas of focus since signing their Commercial Real Estate (CRE) Pledge for Action to Advance Women and DEI in 2021. The pledge was designed around six goals aimed to create accountability and drive progress toward achieving parity and greater diversity in the commercial real estate industry.
Williams Mullen reported its progress to the CRE Women’s Network (CREW), a global organization that promotes all women in commercial real estate through networking, market research, leadership training, and career outreach.
The progress update included an overview of the Women’s Initiative (WIN) Sponsorship Program, demonstrated parity in the firm’s recent partner promotions and leadership appointments and the alignment of the firm’s D&I strategic plan and CREW’s mission through the work of Alyssa Dangler, partner in the Williams Mullen’s Real Estate Section, in her position as president of the CREW Network.
Upon the initial signing of the pledge Woody Fowler, president and CEO of Williams Mullen, had this to say:
“The firm’s WIN has been a driver in affording opportunities for our women to network internally, gain professional development and share feedback on what they need most from our firm. At Williams Mullen, we understand that a diverse and inclusive workplace makes us better at what we do – serving our clients and our communities.”
